What We'll Build: Lessons from Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai & Zechariah

The call to build- led and empowered by a Mighty God- is one that people of faith have been answering for centuries.

 

“I will build my life upon Your love…”, “Build Your Kingdom Here…”, building our future together as His church - we use the word ‘build’ often, but we’re not usually talking about a physical structure or bricks and mortar kind of stuff these days.

 

It seems that one of the ways God invites us into His work of restoration in this world is by asking us to reconstruct and reimagine the way we ‘do church’. To innovate and trailblaze so that the Good News of Jesus continues to reach far and wide and high in each new context. Some talk about the need to make new containers for our faith (or in other words, new systems and structures that hold and give shape to this collective journey of ours), especially when the old containers break or stop working.

 

So, what’s the plan? What will we build? Where do we get the tools? How do we follow God’s lead? And is it even worth pursuing at all?

 

This winter, we’re looking to stories of rebuilding in the Bible - living, breathing, captivating stories laced with the presence and power of the same God we know and follow today. Through the prophets of the Old Testament we meet faith, vision, (occasionally, what not to do), perseverance, hope. The books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai and Zechariah tell the story of a return from 70 years in exile, to rebuild - both the temple and their lives as the people of God. They tell the story of God’s leading and empowerment, and how He does the building with his children alongside.

 

We’ll consider together how God might be using this ancient text to speak fresh vision into our future here at Forest Brook, and into each of our lives and contexts. May we find not a manual or a template, but inspiration as we meet here with God.

A Million Little Miracles: Celebrating 40 Years as a church

To mark this milestone as a church family, we sat down with some of our founding members and asked them to share the story of Forest Brook, how they see God at work in the present, and their dreams for the future. We honour the many little steps of faith they, along with others, took to establish God's church at Forest Brook, and we celebrate all God has in store for us! Happy Birthday Forest Brook!
